is it better to have a bigger reservoir? and where can i get a submersible pump that will fit a reservoir?? i found a clear lexan jar that is waterproof and its thick so i can drill 2 holes in it , should the pump port be on top of the jar or on the side of the jar or does it matter??
im gonna post some pics of my new reservoir when i get it togtther

the more water you have the more water you have to cool? Or the more water you have, the more water the CPU has to heat up?

I believe the second. Submersable pumps can be picked up at local fish stores.......they are aquarium pumps.

well it is both, but you also can allow your water to cool in the radiator and such for a lot longer, plus, the water will cool in the resevoir too. More water is much better than too little, so always err on the safe side!
